Back in June I found these soft blue, green, yellow, and gray fabrics on a fat quarter shelf and Heath Hen on Martha’s Vineyard. They were soft to the touch and just said “sleepy baby” to me. I played around with them and this pattern emerged. The soft colors counter the movement of the rotated half-square triangles, and the result is gentle but playful.
I used a text print from my stash for the binding. Then, because I couldn’t bear to toss the extra little strips left from creating the border, I made a doll quilt. The patchwork stripes were fun and I threw in some of the text print, too! Both quilts are for sale in my Etsy shop.
